says at least a dozen calves have been de
voured by this beast during the past several
months. One calf was found the second
day after its disappearance, and it was al
most completely destroyed. The signs on
tho ground where this calf was killed show
that there was a considerable scuffle and the
tracks of the blast of prey showed it to lie
of large size—much larger than a dog.
Several parties in that neighborhood have
seen it, but they were so badly frightened
that they could give hut a vague idea of it.
Cartersville Con rant-American: Be
tween 300 and 500 hand? have been em
ployed in the ore banks of Bartow county,
and the money paid them in wages went
considerably toward swelling our city trade.
This immense amount of lalxir is now idly,
all on account of-the new interstate com
merce law. Mr. Woodward, of New York,
who has long been identified with our min
ing interests and who employed a great
many hands in raising ore, telegraphed to
his superintendent, Mr. Miles Dobbins, Jr.,
to stop operations until satisfactory rates
could lie secured. The rate now to Pitts
burg is nearly $1 50 more on the ton than
formerly. This, Mr. Woodward states,
takes off most of the profits and he does not
wish to mine the ore simply to enrich the
railroads. Other mines in the county have
shut down and unless some reljef is had our
mineral interests will surely suffer.
The Cartersville Land Company have set
apart fifty acres of the land, just "in the sub
urbs of town, upon which is to be located
the furnaces of the Etowah Iron nnd Man
ganese Company, and upon which is to be
concentrated every industry of said com
pany. The site selected for these works is
most eligibly situated along the line of the
Western and Atlantic railroad. They pro
pose to run railroad tracks and tramways
from its furnaces and rolling mills through
its mineral properties, which is near and
convenient and most accessible to reach.
The work on the furnaces is to begin just as
soon as all the details can be completed. The
Etowah Company is to take large stock in
the laud company aijdare to use every effort
to advance the value of the land of the com
pany. TTio EMlva.li Coinpuity will bring
water for the new city and tlie iron works
from Stamp creek, which everyone knows
to lie pure rreestoue water.
Tlie young schoolmistress at Trenton,
Miss Childress, is very pretty and bright
and quite a* Lille.- A voting man from a
neighboring village mode a desperate effort
to win her favor, but she dislikes him very
much. A few days ago he began to circu
late damaging reports about the young la
dy, which resulted in a nice bit of scandal in
the little town. The stories finally came
to the young lady's ears. Thoroughly
enraged she borrowed a shot gun,
mounted a horse aud went in quest of
her traducer, whom she found in his store
surrounded by a large number of his friends.
Cocking both barrels of her shotgun, which
was loaded with buckshot, she pointed ir at
his head and said: “You villain! Acknowl
edge before these gentlemen that you have
lied about and slandered me, and that there
is no truth in anything yon have said, or I
will this instant blow out your brains!” The
young man, amid the mockery of Ids com
panions, promptly acknowledged all that
was demanded of him. admitting that he
had knowingly slandered the lady, who im
mediately left, escorted by an admiring
crowd.

and dancing begun, which was kept upuntil

enjoyable dances ever given in that section,
and was indulged in by some forty or more

PRESENTED TO THE QUEEN.
An English Woman’s Experience as a
Drawing-Room Debutante.
An English lady who recently had tlie
honor to be presented at court writes to the
Pall Mall Gazette a rather interesting ac
count of her experience. She says: At all
ordinary parties it is fashionable to come in
late; when royalty entertains it is the cor
rect thing to arrive before you are invited,
and therlonger you are in wait ing tlie great
er ia presumed to be your loyalty. When the
Queen announces her reception at 3 o’clock
you ought to be already in your carriage at
1:30, sitting outside the palace until the
royal door is opened. An an eager crowd of
sightseers throng all approaches, it is a little
trying to sit qn liour or so with a line of
noses pressed against the carriage windows,
while an ever-falling shower of criticisms on
“’er dress” assails the ear. When further
remarks about “’er ’ead” are added, one
feels the criticisms are more personal than
pleasant.
Our moment of triumph comes, however,
nt last, when the barrliis are withdrawn
and the carriage dashes through the arch
way, followed by eager eyes that would fain
penetrate the unknown wonders bidden tie
hind that dull, impassive front of palace
wall. As the carriage vanishes from public
view it enters an inner court, formal and
cheerless, save for the bright coats of a
troop of household cavalry ou guard. As
we drive under the portico the royal beef
eaters stand ready to open the huge doors,
and a few policemen make them scire useful.
The low roofed ball we enter is supported by
pillared arches, but it, has a gloomy, cellar
like feeling in spite of its rich decoration.
Along one side runs the cloak-room, where a
number of elderly and
NOT VERY SMART MAIDS
are ready to take our wraps and fold up our
nine feet of trains into a manageable bundle
to be carried afeout until required. From the
hail we ascend a long, st raight staircaso to
the corridor above, where officials stand in
gold-embroidered raiment and require our
passport to the realms of social bliss. I give
u card six inches square, on which niv name
is "writ large,” aud is received in deferential
silence. I sweep my robes along the gallery
through the ballroom, with its scarlet and
gold, all deserted, and then into the flint
state drawing-room, which looks out with a
row of stately windows into the palace
gardens. Here stand about . 100 women
dressed in court attire, and fresh arrivals
swell the number every minute. Between
this apartment and the one in which the
queen receives are four sfate-rpqmsm filled
with other ladies waiting to appncfriv'ft.her
majesty. Newcomers nave Mnkbq'ue'utly
plenty of time before them, and, they Com
pose themselves to admire and criticise the
brilliant crowd.
The first impression of a bevy of vrorffen in
court costume is one of great, rtegaircO. The
uniformity in the dressing of the hair, With
ostrich plumes anil veils, gives a, special
character to the scene. Young gifts pres
ented for the first time look out wittLwon
dering eyes from their masses of white tulle
and feathers. I notice three sweet faces,
all following one majestic mother and load
ing tho air with the fragrance of three huge
bouquets of lilies. One personage has a gown
and train of blue satin, covered with a bold
embroidery of gold thread, which has some
how strayed away from Japanese screens.
Mrs. Osborne Morgan is in red velvet. The
uchess of Leeds displays of tiara of daz
zling brilliants. Lady Gwendoline Ramsden
wears a pretty train of gray brocade, woven
with yellow flowers ami trimmed with yel
low feathers. The general coloring of dresses
is peculiar this year.. Tints of mauve and
esthetic pink arc in a decided majority.
Fabrics of woven gold and silver abound
and look magnificent. Mrs. Henry Brassey
a pears in one of t hese—a handsome black
brocade with golden flowers. Mrs. John
Holland wears a cream satin, also stiff with
golden threads, and charmingly contrasted
with a train of dark green velvet. Mrs.
Gilford carries a splended bouquet of
orchids, matching all the tints of the mauve
brocade which forms her train.
THE EFFECT
of this is charming. Mrs. Raikes in white,
with a satfron-eolored train, attracts notice.
One of the pretkeSt women wears a simple
gown of cream brocade and no diamonds.
Several oeople asked one another her name.
I heard she was Mrs. Arnold Royle.
The usual hour of wating passed pleas
antly. The sun showed through the tall win
dows, lighting up the goklen heads and
flashing jewels of the crowd, while blazing
fires cheered us as doors were throwu open
by the gentlemen in-arms aud we passed
from room to room. These singular beings,
with their brass helmets of fire-brigade
pattern and tall, white plumes, seem a relic
of regency dayß, and would lie more in
harmony with the boon companions of the
Baronet of Rurldygore than the beefeaters
in their soft Tudor dress. Towards 4 o'clock
we gained the room next the queen’s pres
ence. “Now, my deal - , collect your miud
-and hold your fan properly.” I heard a
mother whisper to her daughter, who was
confessing io another debutante that she felt
“awfully frightened,’’ Still she Lire up.
From this room we march out one by one,
with train stretched far behind us, into the
royal presence. The moment is not pleas
ant ; there seems so much millinery and so
little individuality. Tails and plumes have
it all their own way, and the woman is
overlooked. As one enters the throne room,
the Queen stands out conspicuous in her
diamond crown, the bread blue ribon of the
Garter crowning her breast. Tlie clear voice
of the I> ird Cliaml sir lain calls out < air’s mime,
and at that instant the first courtesy should
be mad". The Queen return eu each saluta
tion kindly, though she looks tired. By her
side stands the Princess of Wales, in gray
satin, with a groat diamond star over her
brow, ihio hows somewhat stifily, as if she
knew her duly and was prepared to do it.
I‘riir-ess Christian claims the next courtesy,
and acknowledges it with scant attention.
Then the ihichess of Albany iu black excites
peculiar interest, as she returns sweetly our
reverence. Below her stand the two young
daughters of the Princess of Wales,
WHISPERING G A YLY
to one another, vet attentive to acknowledge
salutations, while their father watches over
them, nnd, cheery as ever, waves the last
adieu to the disappearing train. This was
the merry end of the royal Hue.
The ordeal is over. Gathering up our
Tobes, we hare a pie went ohat wife fnenen
In the picture-gallery, where so many of the
masterpieces of Dutch art waste theinaelvw
on indifferent lieholderx. People look more
graceful now they ore quite at cose, nnd the
presence of the diplomatic light brigade
adds fresh color and picturesque costumes
to the itceua, The Greek uiiuriten weora a
short petticoat of blui velvet, which stands
out like a penwiper over large gaiters of
woven gold. Such a dress must cost a
fortune. The bishop of St. Albans is deftly
steering about, fearful of his snowy sleeve*
and chatting gaily to hi acquaintance. A
girl’s dress that pleased mo fell straight
from the shoulder almost without a fold,
ai:d was painted with long linos or roses. A
tall, graceful woman in a brocade of pink
and silver thread was talking to a lovely
girl in white tulle, covered with a tram of
Stile golden circles The wearers anfl the
dresses were alike bewitching. I noticed
Lady Chelmsford, Lady Claud Hamilton
and Lady Cadogan wearing plentiful diS/-
monda. At the end of the picture-gallery one
could see through an archway the line still
I loosing into the Queen's presence, trailing
their tremendous trains. Borne modistes
make the underdress quite short. This is a
grave mistake, as and light is visible be
tween skirt and train . rJ tho effect is bod.
The skirt should lie tong enough to support
nnd meet the train. Two tall, handsome
girls wore yellow dress** and trains of
mauve, with yellow Stripes. These were
well made and gracefully worn, but still I
could not quite like them. Only one dross
was really hideous, It was mustard yellow,
covered with a royal blue train. “Makes
one feel a little poorly,” was a chance re
mark I caught. Among the crowd one soon
learns to contrast the cool, easy manner of
women who are u-**.l to breath the atmos
phere of courts with the raw, wondering
air of debutantes from the country and the
uneasy fidgets of tho city folk.
Soon after I passed the Queen she retired,
wearied with the endless procession. It is
now 5 o’clock, and tlie crowd is dispersing
fast; already the gallery looks deserted. An
irresistible longing arises for afternoon tea,
and we, too. vanish down the staircase.
Easily we find our cloaks, but to get one’s
carriage is another matter. So we sit in the
cellar-like hall iu an icy draft, hearing
every carriage called but our own, and
observe the ijcefentors, whose manners are
aa archaic as their costume of office. Child
ren of nature these, to whom the stiff habits
of modern service are unknown. Unmoved
by the presence of peer or peeress, two of
them are discussing with unabated breath
the nineteenth-century substitute for nut
bflown ale. When tired of this subject I
change my seat, ami my ears are then as
sailed by elaborate ideas of an other stal
wart servitor on an invention of his own
for getting carriages up without the delays
of “them perlice.” As I wait and shiver I
heartily wish he had an opporttmity of
showing his talents. While he warms to his
subject a cracked voice bawls my name, and
I am whirled away.
